94 Points, Wine and Spirits magazine — “My first notes on the wine were all about the structure: its refinement, balance and harmony. And when a wine leads with complete integration, it’s bound to be good. Slowly, over the course of day, this wine opens to a spiciness in the tannin, like black pure tea. The fruit remains tight, black as plum skin, but generous in its depth and texture. It all hangs together in a supple whole, to cellar for ten years or more.”

91 Points, Wine Spectator weekly — “A rich, smooth and seductive style that starts out with flashy, toasty, smoky oak and leads to a ripe, slightly hot and intense Cabernet Blend. Layers of currant and blackberry fruit firm up on the finish, with a surge of tannins.”

Best of the Best Cabernet Sauvignon, 5-Stars (out of five) Quarterly Wine Review —“Remarkable character and quality.”

Top Pick of Spring Mountain District Wines, The Washington Post—“A marvel of complexity and integration, the wine explodes with gorgeous, ripe berry fruit accented with notes of wood smoke and vanilla. Packed with flavor, but soft and smooth in texture.”
